Good morning and happy Friday!

I was asked by the San Mateo County Law Library to let people know about their next free Noontime Lecture, a series of presentations about a variety of legal issues. This month’s presentation is on March 14 and the topic is “Expungment: Sealing Your Arrest and Conviction Records.”

And, many of you have been waiting for this: it’s the ever-popular CityTrees Pruning Workshop provided in coordination with the Redwood City Public Works Services Division. This is their 10th annual pruning workshop, and it’s a great way to learn about basic tree maintenance. It includes classroom presentation as well as hands-on training.

Please read below for information on both of these upcoming events!

Free Noontime Lecture at the San Mateo County Law Library

Expungement: Sealing Your Arrest and Conviction Records

Thursday, March 14 – noon

Law Library, 710 Hamilton Street, Redwood City


A criminal record can adversely affect your life for years beyond the crime and punishment.  It can hinder your ability to find gainful employment, obtain professional or commercial licenses, and be a consequence in future criminal proceedings.  Restoring your good name may be possible by a legal court process known as expungement.  During this noontime lecture, Attorney Alex Easterbrook will provide an overview of which convictions are eligible for expungement, what expungement can and cannot do to your criminal record, and how to apply for expungement.


The public is invited to attend this free lecture at the Law Library (710 Hamilton Street, Redwood City) on Thursday, March 14, 2013 at 12noon.


For more information please contact the Law Library at 650-363-4913.
